|Marty Stuart's parents were
also in the house. Stuart, who noted that his career
began 33 years ago on the Ryman stage when he was a
child mandolin prodigy performing with Lester Flatt,
received a lifetime achievement award.
"There's the chart and there's the heart," said Stuart, who spent years as a mainstream country performer before branching into more right-field musical endeavors. "It's great when they both line up, but given the choice, you'd better follow your heart."
